    I’ve been seeing posts about this, too. A great, innovative idea. We have at least one in Toronto – possibly more.

    This is so cool. I’d heard of vertical farming a few years back, but didn’t realize there were so many being built. And I love the aquaponic aspect., especially using the fish’s effluent as fertilizer for the plants. Our world will be so much better off and a heck of a lot healthier with most of the food being produced and consumed being veggies and fish 🙂

    Such a sensible idea. Imagine what we could achieve and the problems we could solve if the world was organised rationally. (Sigh)

      lmao – yes! I love that you used the word ‘rationally’. Agriculture is like a massive cruise liner – takes forever to make a course change. Vertical farming should have made good sense decades ago. I guess the problem is both ‘old’ thinking and the cost of setting a vertical farm up. Definitely the way of the future though.
